We live in the middle of acres and acres of 150-year-old olive trees, with vegetable beds in the back and the front of the house, and the neighbors knew us before we'd even seen them!

I want to be able to pass this feeling along in all of my shop selections - the wonder in the world is all around us. I am inspired by my love of my surroundings and my love of materials, and hope that this shows in what you purchase.

I love to make things especially for a person and occasion, so please don't hesitate to ask for custom made products. I feel it a moral obligation to be completely honest about my time and abilities, so be sure that what I create is made with all of my energy and effort.

Happy shopping!

Love,

Elizabeth
